Hello and Welcome to class 6L, 

This year at Hawthorn we have split Year 6 into two classes and I have the pleasure of teaching one of those classes! 

The children work very hard preparing for the end of Key Stage 2 SATs. Although the work is challenging, we minimise the pressure by creating a supportive and stimulating learning environment enabling the children to excel.

 We value the support of parents and guardians and we will be creating lots of opportunities to invite you into class to work alongside your child and to see the progress they have made.

In English  we have written mythical stories using the story of Beowulf as our stimuli. This whole class worked hard to make their story exciting and use a range of vocabulary as well as a range of punctuation within their writing.

The children also had to plan their story and the draft it and then finally write it up in neat once they have edited their work.

In Maths  we have just completed our ‘Number unit which involved us using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. During this unit of work we have;

  • Solved addition and subtraction multi steps in content
  • Multiplied multi digit numbers up to 4 digits by a 2-digit number using the formal written method of long multiplication.
  • Divided numbers up to 4 digits by a 2-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division,
  • Performed mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers.
  • Identify common factors, common multiples and prime numbers.
  • Used all four operations to complete Bodmas calculations.

See our work below to check out how well we have been doing.
